It seems strange to think of Marilyn Monroe as anything but a thirty-something person but, had she lived, she would be 90 years old this year! Her death was 54 years ago last Friday and she's still an icon of the silver screen.
As a tribute, this image by The East Wind came with their monthly newsletter and is called, appropriately enough, Aurora "Marilyn."
I used the sketch from Outlawz
and colors that came from House That Stamps Built.
I colored with my ProMarkers, then cut and corner punched the image. I matted it with black dp which does have a print in it but it's rather faint and difficult to see. Again, I punched the corners. I added a polka dot background and then dug out my Memory Box dies.
I cut gray butterflies, then pink vines and flowers, stacking layers of flower petals to make the two larger flowers which are adhered on top of the black ribbon. I added sparkly gems, scattering them across the image and the die cuts. After all, Marilyn did believe that "Diamonds are a Girl's Best Friend!"
